New poly tunnel
« on: September 24, 2012, 20:55 »
Just bought a new poly tunnel. It's not huge 6m by 3m but just put 4 raised beds in there. Really want to get something in but am I being too keen? Don't want to rush things but only got the plot 6 months ago (it's 30m by 3m) and haven't grown anything yet....if I can, what do you recommend?

Thanks for your help, Rob

You could over-winter something. I haven't tried this, but things people do are onions & beans.

Other things you can grow all year round are greens, in particular Japanese greens. I believe you can also do Pak Choi. If you have it up, you may as well experiment with something like Pak Choi.

You could do some Christmas spuds in there, with a bit of protection. You could do overwintering peas or onions. We are right at the end of September now, but according to my polytunnel book you can get away with a last sowing of calabrese (for March), turnips, kohlrabi and spinach this month.
